Ok so I read the article from Creative Commons. It was clear as mud. Copyright laws make my head spin and my brain hurt. I understand the reasoning behind them but I'm not sure they work for much in the real world. If you put something on the internet you really do need to be prepared for the whole world to see it. If you only want it being seen by certain people or used in certain ways then you shouldn't put it online. That of course raises a dilemma because you won't get the exposure plus possible revenue if that's what you're after.

I noticed he said that by 2040 the internet will exceed humanity in processing power. I would have thought that was already true now in 2012. It seems nearly everything is internet based now. He also compared the web to a black hole. I agree with him. It's only going to increase as time goes on. So much of our life already has the internet intertwined that it's difficult at times to separate.
I think I was supposed to put this here in my blog as well as in the discussion forum. So here it is, my presence online. I used to use Facebook a lot but got bored with it. Now I will go check if someone says they posted a new picture. Otherwise I don't care what's there anymore.
This is mine. It represents my interests, my recently started non profit, my son's modeling, school of course and email. I included my little man in the picture because he's home all day while his three big sisters go to school so he's usually online with me. I used the simple paint program that came with the computer. I did download Gimp but wasn't able to figure out how to use it yet.The logo for Diaper Obsessions is mine for my non profit. I created it using www.logomaker.com.

I'm hoping to learn how to make better websites with pictures, videos etc since I am in the process of trying to get a new site off the ground for something that interests me. My biggest anxiety about this class is the requirement for video and voice capability. That means we will probably be making recordings of ourselves which I don't like at all. I become nervous, self-conscious and tongue tied when trying to do it. I'm much better at writing than I am at recording myself. This is not my first online class. I've taken several over the last couple of years. I don't really have any sort of background in technology except normal student types of things.
